Hmmmph... here I am, almost a saint,
Yet Toe gets all the credit.
I'm pure as snow, and old Toe ain't,
But it's TRUE if old Toe said it!

Well, I'm just a second-fiddle man
Behind that rascal Toe.
I should be leader of the band!
But I'm stuck in the last row.

Oh, sure, the ladies swoon when they
Read my romantic lines of verse.
But then they drop in a faint,
When they hear that rascal curse!

Yes, I'm just a second-fiddle man
Behind that scalawag.
I feel that I'm back in the band
Compared to old Toerag.

Lil Belle leads the comely gals
In their adoring sighs.
She's even gotten Femme Fatale
Looking with adoring eyes.

Woe is me, I'm a second-fiddle man
Behind that dreadful rake.
I'm not even included in his band,
(I'm a SAINT for heaven's sake!)

So you ladies go on with your sighs,
While I sit here and cry.
You're as mean as Toe, I realize,
And that is the reason why.....

Its true, I'm a second-fiddle man
To my very best of friends.
He's earns his lead in the band,
Over and over again.

As easy as this reads,Im not sure weather I should say OUCH or LAUGH?  
This reads as a joke on one line and not so funny on the next.
I guess It would have more meaning to me if I knew the ones that this was for.
Still it`s well worded and well written.
Thank you for the read LngJhnAg

Hey there, Ruff - Toe and I have been trading barbs with each other for almost two years now.  He and I are both pretty busy outside in the real world right now, so we don't get much of a chance to play in here.  We used to be the best of friends, and then that scurrilous Balladeer came along and set us at each other's throats (NOT!).  Welcome to the Forums.  I hope I get a chance to read some fo your work.

As for you!  Miss Behavin!  (smooch)  If lil Lorelei didn't know you very well, she might trust you with me on this Hallowed Day.  Alas... woe is me....  Hugs to you, fine lady.

'Deer - please don't read what I wrote just before this.... errr... "pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!"  yeah!  that'll throw him off

Well, LgnJohn,

Women can't resist that James Dean type
depsite all this so called nice guy hype.

But don't feel bad, we love ya too, ya know!
It's if Toe shows up, well, we gotta go!

The ever faithful Corinne

Look at it this way guys. When I go shopping, I may covet the shoes another woman is wearing...but I know that if I knock her down and steal them, she's gonna' whomp me! So I look around for some shoes that will fit my feet....That Toe is just a pair of Red Spangled Pumps in the Shoe Department of Life!!! LOL

LongJohn, LongJohn~
wipe that frown off your face.
Sadie's day has ended
and it's no longer a race.

You be's spoke fer
and that Toe ... he
gives it out to the girls
for free.  

Never minded being second-fiddle,
as long as somebody played me !
Ya' know ?

Sailor,

Toe? Who's Toe? All I see is someone who took time out of his busy life to help me with my meager poetry...second fiddle? Never! I'd say you were more the conductor, And I'm sure Mr. Toe and Balladeer count there lucky stars to have you as a friend....I do!

I sing my tearful song which has charms only for me."

I can say that I know
neither you nor Toe
but your poem is
quite hilarious

and in the matter of
second fiddle, Dear Sir,
I would bet
you're a Stradivarius.

Now wait just a cotton pickin' minute??? Almost a saint? YOU???? HA!!!! And I'm not exactly recruiting for his fan club, yanno... just trying to keep my place as first in line! LOL. PDV may worry about getting whomped... but there are others that would just as soon stomp all over me for a moment of Toe's attention... I can't say I blame them for recognizing perfection... but I've got a plan to trip one gal up and provide Beauregard's dinner! LOL

Great job, sailor man... and ROFL @ Balladeer. *G*

And now, back to your title... *G* I'd love to be saying that... but my declaration would be followed by BIG smiles! LOL

Corinne - He makes you gotta go?  He makes you do that, eh?  Shame on that nefarious diarrhetic scalawag!

Miz Devine - Red spangled pumps, indeed!  Does this mean I'm not really a second fiddle - I'm just an old worn out pair of shoes????  lol - nice riposte.

Marge - lol @ "Never minded being second-fiddle,as long as somebody played me!"  Well spoken, Lady Tindal!

lil White Dove - Thank you for including me in the people who have been missed. I know Toe has been missed more, but that's because pain is always noticed most when it isn't around - lol.

Saxon Lady!  There you are!  I was beginning to wonder if you had dropped off the face of the earth.  Hugs to you, fine lady.

HEY!  Everybody - go back and read Saxon Lady's response - she is truly filled with wisdom!

Claire!  lol (and clapping my hands in delight)@stradivarius - this is a wonderful description of me.  But.... you must not forget to compliment Toerag - he's... he's... yeah... he's like the only mouth harp that wasn't left home when all the hillbillies met at the Hillybilly Mouth Harp Convention.

Belle!  Now don't go gittin' yer dander up jes cuz old Toe ain't here to defend hisself, yahare?  Yanno howse he would luv to be hare with y'all.  hugs

Wow..

What a few days of memories for me, Cyka, LVCup, King and a few others somehow surfaced and then reading this took me back...

Maybe I'm into nostalgia but I sat here with a smile thinking about you and tarts...oh heck..*g*..the relationships that we all built and the knowledge of each other in the most kindest of ways that enabled us all to laugh so much...

Thanks sweetheart...it's good to go back sometimes and remember fun and smiles and the occasional huffy female...hmmmm, that dreadful Queen..

HUSG

 I dropped a tear in the ocean
when it is found, I will stop loving you...
